Anytype iOS 0.24.0 released!

Happy mid-August, Anytypers!

This month, we’ve focused on delivering some serious upgrades to your templates workflows on iOS, in addition to a few polishes and fixes. Let’s go!

:gem: New Features:

Templates can now be previewed & selected from sets

Upon opening any set, you’ll find that the ‘New’ button to create objects now has a new toggle button on its right. By tapping on this toggle, you’ll open a menu which displays previews of all templates that you’ve created for this type.

From here, you can select the template you wish to proceed with (including a ‘blank’ template).

Introduction of editing & duplicating options for templates

From the above menu you can tap ‘Edit’ and tap the three-dots menu on any template, which will generate a new menu which gives you the options to edit or duplicate the template. Tapping ‘Edit template’ will open the template in the editor, and any changes you make will be synced on all devices.

In case you like the structure of one of your templates and just want to have a slightly modified option, you can tap ‘Duplicate’ which will, as the name implies, create a duplicate of the template you’ve selected.

Default templates can be defined for each set view

In addition to the ‘edit’’ and ‘duplicate’ function, you can also choose whether you’d like to apply a template by default to the given set view. This means that each time you create a new object from set, the default template will be auto-applied.

Introduction of Recently Edited widget

Previously you had the option of ‘Recents’ as a widget, which displayed recently opened objects on your device, and was not synced to other devices. Now, you can choose between ‘Recently Opened’ if you’re fine with the current functionality, or alternatively, you can choose ‘Recently Edited’ as a widget source. Note that only the latter option will be synced cross-device due to the distributed nature of the application.

:rocket: Improvements:

Colorful recovery phrase

We’ve injected a dose of color to your recovery phrase screen for purposes of 1) joy and 2) greater consistency with the desktop experience.

Introduced limits on text in recovery phrase input field

It is no longer possible to input an infinite string of text in the recovery phrase window - we have introduced limits of 12 words with maximum 8-characters each, whose standards are consistent with those of the BIP-39 protocol used to generate user recovery phrases.

:bug: Fixes:

Fixed: Deleted files now appear in the bin. Thanks, @dzshch!
